Cloistered nuns are a thing of the past, so this makes this museum interesting four N. Americans. The architecture is beautiful and the nuns sell beautiful bread.

This is a lovely spot to spend some time when in Cuenca......visiting the religious displays in each room provides you with a sense of the history of this compound. Although it's still a working convent, you would never know it; it's very quiet with no evidence of any activity going on. We appreciated the printed information in some of the rooms that was in English as well as Spanish......very helpful. Enjoy a step back in time when visiting this museum.

This was one of our favorite places in our month long visit to Cuenca. The simplicity of the architecture is captivating. The rooms on 2 floors surrounding the courtyards where the planting was being enhanced and cleaned up, are full of interesting and nicely displayed items. Even if you are not religious, one can find a lot to appreciate in the beauty and history of some of the items displayed. You can think of the people who made them, the reasons for them to be. The elaborate diorama style displays had more to see than there was time to fully investigate. Especially touching were the toys brought in as part of a girl's dowry as 12 was the age they could be accepted.
I try to put myself into the history of what I am viewing as I travel and not judge other people and other times.

Part of this compound remains an active monestary. There are several very different worlds at play here. It all in spanish. The tran1uility of the inner courtyards is wonderfil. It was about $3 per person. Catch it durning a rainy afternoon to watch the water come off the roof onto the plants in the lush courtyard.
